- Located 800 metres from the Duomo in the centre of Florence
- Great value for money
Comprised of three historical buildings, the Alba Palace stands besides the cloisters of Santa Maria Novella, 800 metres from the Duomo in the historic centre of Florence and only 200 metres from the Santa Maria Novella station (Florence's main train station). The buildings surround the covered courtyard, now the hotel's breakfast room built in typical Florentine style. All the bedrooms are positioned around the central courtyard and are cosy and quiet.
The recent renovation of the building has combined the ancient origins of terracotta, stone and wrought iron originally used in these traditional buildings together with the modern comforts you will find in every room today. The Alba Palace is ideally located for exploring Florence and the lobby bar is a great place to unwind after a fun-filled day.
The hotel has 28 rooms (official rating 3 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years.

We booked this hotel based on past reviews and were very pleased with our choice. It literally is about 5 minutes walk from the central train station and well located for all the major sights. Florence is a very compact walking city making it very easy to overdo the walking! The little complimentary snacks and drinks provided are very welcome when you return to the hotel, an added bonus. There is a varied choice for breakfast, the usual cereals, a small hot buffet, croissants, cakes, meats and cheese plus fresh fruit, juices and coffee, something for everyone. The room was spotlessly clean, towels changed daily and new soaps and complimentary toiletries provided. There was a fridge with mini bar in the room but we didn???t use that. There is a safe in your room too for which there was no extra charge. The city tax was ???4.50 per person per night and payable either in cash or debit/credit card on checkout. All the staff were very polite and helpful. I would not hesitate to use this hotel should we return to Florence and would definitely recommend it.

Excellent from start to finish. Everyone helpful and ready to make your stay enjoyable. VERY CLEAN rooms, good water pressure and extremely hot water. Decent breakfast???ask for a cappuccino and they will make one for you. During the day, they put cookies and salty snacks out for you should you desire a nibble. Ask for room 208???very quiet. Photo is of lobby???a great place to relax. Hot tea is included in the price of the room. A+++++
